Scallop Square Easel Card

Posted in 3D items, Cards tagged , , , , at 9:11 am by bejewelledcreations

I really enjoy the bright yellow of this card – all summery and fresh (if only we had the same weather!!!) I love the crispness of the white & yellow ribbon and crocheted flower – so cute.

I wanted to use my Scallop square Stampin’ Up! die for an easel  card and so I planned around it with this card. I’ve used the Crayon Resist technique again on Glossy White cardstock and used the brayer to ink Blushing Bride over the top. (The white areas are where I coloured with the wax crayon.)

I haven’t bothered with a sentiment again – this card is now useful for any ocassion!

Stamps: Bordering on Romance

Inks: Black Staz-On, Blushing Bride

Cardstock: Daffodil Delight, Garden Green, Glossy White, Whisper White

Others: Brayer, wax crayon, Big Shot, Large Scallop Square Bigz Clear Die, Fleurettes II, Glimmer Brads, 1 1/4″ Striped Grosgrain ribbon, Rhinestone jewels.

A little bit of a Twist.

Posted in 3D items, Cards tagged , , , , , at 8:39 am by bejewelledcreations

A very quick post today.

Using my much loved Apothecary Art stamp set and matching Big Shot Framelits – Labels Collection, here is a Twisted Easel card.

I’ve kept the colour palette to a minimum here – Marina Mist and Certainly Celery with Very Vanilla. (I really love the shine that the satin ribbon gives off.)

I hope it has a clean and fresh feel to it, at least I *think* it does anyway.

Here is the whole set for Apothecary Art – it’s really versatile, and while it’s PERFECT when you match it with the Framelits Labels Collection die, you can easily cut these images out by hand.

This is the Loving Thoughts set. I used the “Wonderful You” sentiment for my Twisted Easel Card, above.

Stamps: Apothecary Art, Loving Thoughts (both in the Autumn-Winter mini catalogue – out now!)

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Marina Mist, Certainly Celery

Inks: Marina Mist

Other: Big Shot, Framelits- Labels Collection, Finial Press embossing folder, Certainly Celery Satin Ribbon, Boho Blossom punch, Basi Jewels Rhinestones, Snail, Dimensionals, Sticky Strip.

Thanks for visiting – have you stamped today?
